Swap vacuum actuator to electric on 77 Safari

Looking for some input from those that have done this. If I go with the Hydeastar 1600, does it come with a breakaway switch? The vacuum actuator setup OEM includes a vacuum activated breakaway switch. The literature I have read online about the Hydrastar does not mention a breakaway switch. Am I missing something? TIA.

HBA1600 does not include a breakaway switch. I have installed one so that's my knowledge base.

Your trailer brakes drum or disc?

My 77 has discs which appear to be in good shape.
